Spotlighting Roger Knox, with Dave Alvin

This week, we're sharing a special collection of songs with you, one at a time, performed by some of the finest artists at work in Americana music these days. The tunes in question have been plucked fresh from a new album with Roger Knox which will be released on 2/12 by the fine folks at Bloodshot Records.

From Bloodshot: 

"Since Roger has such an inspiring life story and rich musical history, we wanted to have fellow musicians—the artistic contributors to his album—tell you about how Roger's musical journey connected with each of them throughout the making of this album. Each day we will feature a different artist who contributed to Roger's album, their testimonial, and an exclusive streaming track from the forthcoming album."

Yesterday, we kicked off this series with a track from Kelly Hogan, and today we're on to the great and talented Dave Alvin, who kicked a guitar solo into Knox's tune "The Land Where the Crow Flies Backwards.


"It sounds fucking great. You did a great production job on it. I'm very proud to be associated with the music in even a small way." 

Without further ado, we give you the stream of “The Land Where the Crow Flies Backwards”:

As an Australian, I am so excited about this record.   I've seen Roger and the Knoxes (especially his son Buddy) at Tamworth, fantastic he is getting this exposure.
